Germany's Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft shipyard is expected to hand over one of the world's most advanced submarines to Israel's navy this year for sea trials.
The ultra-quiet, hard-to-detect Dolphin class sub is the fourth boat in a planned six-pack of submarines that are reportedly capable of firing nuclear-tipped cruise missiles, giving Israel unparalleled strategic reach in the Middle East even though until now it had never been a potent sea power.
The heavily modified Israeli Dolphins are considered the most modern non-nuclear submarines in the world.
The new Tannin is to be delivered to Israel by the end of the year.
A larger fuel capacity extends the Dolphins' range to around 6,250 miles and operational endurance to 50 days.
Western military sources say that in 2002 Israel armed the first batch of Dolphins with U.S. AGM-84 Harpoon missiles built by Boeing and fitted in Israel with nuclear warheads.
